​Child Of Man

This song is by Noa and appears on the album Noa (1994).

If I were a desert flower
All winter long I'd pain and cower
Spring would make me sing
My voice would ring
As tiny buds begin to bloom
In spring I'd blossom and forget
The winter's gloom

If I were a brook of water
Kissed by the frost along my borders
Spring would make me sing my voice would ring
As I'd release my icy chains
In spring I'd bubble and forget the winter's rains

But I am only a child of man
I am only a child of man
Just an innocent child of man…

Don't look so surprised as my eyes shine and glow
It's the sunlight in the skies that is making me so

If I were a joyful songbird
All winter long so cold and somber
Spring would make me sing
My voice would ring like tiny bells on scarves
Of silk
A song as beautiful and pure as mother's milk

But I am only a child of man
I am only a child of man
Just an innocent child of man

Don't look so surprised as my eyes shine and glow
It's the sunlight in the skies that is making me so

Don't be surprised
By this look in me eyes
Like a flower or tree
I will bloom in the spring
I will shed all my woes
As the green grass grows
Like a flower or tree
I will throw my head back and sing
